. the senate bill that was passed in july was sort of a clean bill. it was flawed in the sense that it didn't deal with the alternative minimum tax and some other things, but it extended the rates for everything under $250,000. that's the bill that the president wants to see an up or down vote in the house. again, even if the house were to vote on that bill, it would still have to go bab to the senate because the house has to act first. so it's just a mess. >> okay. thanks, joy. thanks, leigh. thanks for sticking around. stay tuned at 5:45 or the president's statement. up next, the nra's response to gun violence? what else, more guns. >>> and the renewed battle over gun violence is with chris matthews. in 15 minutes we expect to hear from the president so stay tuned to msnbc, the place for politics. stay tuned at 5:45 or the politics. campbell's has 24 new soups that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. c'mon, michael! get in the game!
